Growing up NEXT with Bill Bradley
One of the first pro athletes to become a politician, Bill Bradley played on the New York Knicks championship teams of 1970 and '73. He delayed his NBA career after graduating from Princeton so he could spend two years at Oxford University on a Rhodes scholarship. He was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1978 for three terms, and ran for president in 2000, losing in the Democratic primary.
Among other pursuits, he now is chairman of the advisory board of Sports Potential, the Bay Area startup that recommends specific sports to kids and adults based in part on a detailed series of physiological tests.
Bradley will join us Tuesday at 3 p.m. ET to talk about the professionalization of youth sports, as part of ESPN.com's Growing Up NEXT series.
